FORTUNE -- It's been seven months since Fabio Zambelli retired SetteB.IT, the Italian-language blog with which he'd been covering Apple (AAPL) for more than five years. But he's still tracking the company's progress. When Fortune released its annual listing of America's 500 largest companies over the weekend -- a list that showed Apple rising from 35 in 2011 to an all-time-high of 17 in 2012 -- Zambelli commemorated the event with the graphic reproduced above. You can see the original on his Twitter account. You can read Fortune's Apple write-up here.
